After its star Olivia Colman won a Golden Globe, The Favourite is on at Wem Town Hall on February 1 at 7.30pm.

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving.

A frail Queen Anne (Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to the Queen’s ill health and mercurial temper.

The film has opened up to worldwide acclaim with all three stars receiving massive plaudits for their performances, with outstanding back-up from Nicholas Hoult and James 'Glenn from The Thick of It' Smith.

The film is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, who brings a new style to a period drama.
